Support for Reserves would be music to Haughey's ears

BANBRIDGE Town Reserves boss Ronnie Haughey is getting behind the turntables this Saturday night, July 31, in a bid to kit out his young team for next season – and he is hoping that the event will be well supported.

"Money from sponsorship is hard to find at the moment so we're running a disco at the club on Saturday night with all monies raised going towards the purchase of a new skip," said Haughey.

"Because we are a reserve side we are a bit of the poor-relations at the club as, understandably, most of the club's efforts in raising money are needed to finance the first team in the IFA Championship.

"Also, the fact we're the Town's reserve side, unlike other junior clubs in the area, we're not in a position to benefit from the link-ups that the likes of Seapatrick, Banbridge AFC and Scarva have with local bars.

"That said, if there are any businessmen out there who would like to take the opportunity to help us out I would be more than grateful," added Haughey.

Saturday night's disco will get underway at 8.30pm with music from throughout all the decades to ensure that everyone's taste will be catered for with admission 5, payable at the door.

On the footballing front the Reserves, who will be playing in Mid-Ulster Division Three this season, will take on Intermediate A locals Seapatrick in a pre-season friendly on Monday, August 2, at Crystal Park, kick-off 7pm.
